when the polls are going their way. right now, that would be the romney campaign. new polling in battleground states tonight, the latest cnn/orc survey in ohio done entirely after the first debate, now showing a four point obama lead. that's a statistical tie. it is a significant change from the seven to ten point lead the president enjoyed before the debate. new polling as well from sienna college that shows a statistical tie in pennsylvania. that's based on surveys done both before and after the debate and nationally in gallup's daily tracking poll which covers october 2nd through the 8th, mitt romney now holds a two point edge. today, gallup shifted from registered to likely voters, which tends to favor republicans. that said, though, it is hard to find any evidence, any evidence that president obama escaped denver without at least some damage. the only question being how severe and how long-lasting. that seems hard to dispute. just as it's hard to dispute that prior to the debate, mr. romney was getting hammered in the polls. keeping them honest though, disputing or downpl

week's debate puts romney firmly in the lead of president obama, 49 to 45. in the same poll in september, the president had a 51-43 lead. romney seems to be gaining ground with women. in a moment, i will ask polling guru nate silver what it all really means. meanly, a newly energized candidate romney is wasting no time pressing his advantage, today hitting the president with tough talk on foreign policy, including the deadly attack on americans in libya. >> this latest assault can't be blamed on a reprehensible video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists who use violence to impose their dark ideology on others, especially on women and girls who are fighting to control much of the middle east today and who seek to wage perpetual war on the west. >> joining me now, a man who knows quite a lot about mitt romney's views on all this, norm coleman, advisor to the romney campaign on foreign policy and former senator from minnesota
